Although moving is one of the main requirements for fine managed turf, it’s not the only practice required in the process of producing quality playing surfaces for the golf consumer.

This course explores in-depth the importance of aeration, top dressing, scarification and over-seeding in providing true and sustainable surfaces that balance both the expectations of the golf consumer with the needs of the grass plant to stay healthy and, ultimately, survive.


– Aeration
– Top Dressing
